The real deal. After it was revealed that Olivia Culpo and Tim Tebow had split after a few months of dating, a source close the former Miss Universe reveals exclusively to Us Weekly exactly what went wrong between the two.

While it was widely speculated and reported by the New York Daily News that Tebow's vow to remain a virgin until marriage was the main reason for the breakup, the insider tells Us that timing played another role.

"They met at church," the Culpo source tells Us of the pair, adding that the stars "hung out a few times," and share mutual friends. In fact, it was a pal who set up the beauty queen, 23, and Heisman winner, 28, as first reported by Us last month.

"Tim's super into her," a source told Us at the time. "It’s very new, but he thinks she is a goddess. He’s very attentive, and writes her sweet notes all the time."

Indeed, the Culpo source reiterates to Us that Tebow liked Culpo a lot, but her heart just wasn't ready for a new romance. "He was very into her," the source tells Us. "But she just got out of a long-term relationship, and was not interested."

Us confirmed this past June that the former Miss USA and her boyfriend of two years, Nick Jonas, had ended their relationship. While Culpo was open about her heartbreak, Jonas had nothing but good things to say about his ex.

"She's an amazing person," the former child star told Mario Lopez in June. "We had a great, a beautiful two years together." As previously reported by Us, the "Jealous" hitmaker, meanwhile, hooked up with Kate Hudson following his breakup.
